Light and Creamy Toasted Sesame Asian Dressing

Oh, this dressing is divine. This dressing is creamy, tangy, sweet and full of Asian flavors.  It turns an ordinary salad into “Hot Dang! Salad is my new best friend”… in just a matter of seconds. Pour it over a nice crisp cabbage salad, spoon a little into some warm rice…toss some with roasted broccoli […]

Easy Toffee Pretzel Bark

This might be the easiest candy you will ever make. It’s MUCH easier than Homemade Caramels and more simple than regular English Toffee.  No need to stand at the stove and stir and you don’t need a candy thermometer! It’s also made with a very short list of ingredients, most of which I would bet my […]

Pico De Gallo (Fresh Mexican Salsa)

Have you ever made Pico De Gallo (Fresh Mexican Salsa) before? Wow, it can really be fabulous. Fresh tomatoes, peppers, red onions and avocado are mixed together. Chop up some fresh garlic, cilantro and add a splash of lime juice and you will have a bowl full of fresh tasting wonder. You will, truly. Serve […]

Let It Go, by Chris Williams (Giveaway)

I saw this picture yesterday on Facebook and thought it beautifully simple and profound. What Mr. Rogers has to say is plain truth. Amid tragedy, and terrible circumstances there are always good, kind people there to pick up the pieces…lending a helping hand and providing a stable shoulder to cry on. It is amazing to watch, isn’t […]

Grilled Chicken Taco Marinade

A couple of weeks ago I was chatting with my dear friend Katherine. (She has given me many recipes in the past, that I’ve shared with you all. Like this fabulous Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken and this tasty Cinnamon Bear Popcorn. Both a delight! Kind of like Katherine, who is darn delight, herself!)  Anyhow, Katherine and […]

Pretty Baby Shower Ideas

Several weeks ago my Sisters and Mom (in law) and I put on a baby shower for our dear cousin. I love to throw a party with these ladies. Actually, if the truth were to be known…I love to do pretty much anything with these gals. I have been blessed beyond measure, with sisters and […]

Soft, Frosted Lemon Sugar Cookies

I love lemons. I love limes. I love oranges. I suppose you could say, I am a girl with a need for a little bit of citrus in her life. Especially when Spring shines her pretty (and sometimes RAINY) face around town, I get to craving everything lemon. These Lemon Cream Cheese Tarts, and these […]

Asparagus, Tomato and Artichoke Pasta Salad

Oh, I love a good Italian style pasta salad. Fresh tomatoes, asparagus, olives, red onion, marinated artichoke hearts and parmesan cheese…all tossed together with pasta and a flavorful dressing. You could even add some shredded chicken and turn this lovely salad into a meal! Then please invite me over, won’t you? I could eat this […]

Coconut Syrup

I’ve been on somewhat of a Homemade Syrup kick lately. Anyone remember the Cinnamon Syrup I posted a few months ago? The stuff is like sweet dream pie, I tell you. I feel like kissing it when I make it, truly. Excepting that kissing syrup would be pretty weird and would end up giving my children […]

Easy Beef Stroganoff (Crock Pot)

Several weeks ago I noticed a recipe my friend Tina (from Mommys Kitchen) posted some time ago on her blog. She called the recipe “No Peek Beef Tips” and said the beef was cooked for three hours in the oven in a simple, savory sauce. I thought that sounded fabulous, and so I gave her recipe a go. However, I cooked […]
